    University of Scranton students conduct research in some of the country’s “Best Science Lab Facilities,” and dine on the “Best Campus Food” in the nation, according The Princeton Review.

    For the 17th consecutive year The Princeton Review included Scranton in its annual “Best 384 Colleges” guidebook, which published Aug. 7. In addition, for the fourth consecutive year, The Princeton Review ranked the University’s science labs among top 20 in the country, coming in at No. 16 in 2019 edition, and ranked Scranton No. 15 in its list of the “Best Campus Food.”

    The Princeton Review’s “Best of” lists, which rank the “Top 20” colleges in 62 categories, are based “entirely” on surveys of students at colleges selected by The Princeton Review for inclusion in its guidebook, which includes just 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and universities.

    The guidebook includes detailed profiles of each of “The Best 384 Colleges.” Scranton’s profile stated that students appreciate the emphasis placed on “doing service for others” and the liberal arts courses required in “the humanities, philosophy and theology.” The guidebook also noted Scranton’s strength in science programs, “which result in a high rate of students getting acceptance to medical schools.” Students also praised the genuine care and support they receive from faculty.

    In addition to The Princeton Review, U.S. News has ranked Scranton among the top 10 “Best Regional Universities in the North” for 24 consecutive years, placing the University No. 6 in its 2018 edition of the “Best Colleges” guidebook. U.S. News also ranked Scranton’s programs in finance at No. 17, accounting at No. 17 and entrepreneurship at No. 22 in the country, and ranked Scranton No. 18 as a “Best Value Regional University in the North.”
